Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru – Vinous – 93+ Points
Good medium red. Fresh but reticent aromas of red berries, dried flowers, spices, flint, caramel and complex soil tones. Juicy, tight and youthfully imploded but already hinting at compelling sweetness of fruit. The very tight, gripping tannins will need many years of patience to harmonize with the wine’s mid-palate material. I marginally preferred this wine to the Clos de la Roche in late 2015 but it’s a bit spikier today.
